A Generous Gift Has Been Made In Your Name To Obama 2012

This is so incredibly tacky - I didn't believe it was true all day yesterday. Even if Mrs. Obama thought this was ok, I can't for a minute believe her MOTHER did! Tasteless, desperate, base behavior unbecoming of the office. I remained stunned by the audacity of ignobility.

There’s desperation. Then there’s the Obama-Biden re-election campaign’s fundraising operation.

Remember that Seinfeld episode where George Costanza, because he’s cheap and didn’t want to buy co-workers anything for Christmas, gave everyone a card saying a gift had been made in their name to the “Human Fund”? The Human Fund didn’t exist. George made it up because he was just that cheap.

But those “I gave your gift to someone else” charitable donations do exist. I get a few of them every year from people who shouldn’t be giving me gifts in the first place. It never occurred to me...
